    Heh you're welcome.

    As far as the tires go I think of wide tired bikes (meaning anything over 23c) like SUVs. Maybe not the bike to race in a crit (at least not for me) but a lot of fun to ride....

    Will 25s fit? I wonder if it's worth the effort? I should reduce vibrations significantly and allow you to reduce pressure safely.
